Natural hair is always a winning style when it comes to swag. However, methods such as cornrows, afros, dreadlocks, and shaved patterns are also acceptable. Different techniques are for different people, and each one will frame your face differently, so make sure it is a style that gets you noticed positively. For make-up, blacks, silvers, greys, blues, and purples are classic tones to use, however, do not be shy to go for some exhilarating neon shades!

Neon is widely accepted in swag even though we rarely see it. Smokey eyes are brilliant for black ladies as it can make the eyes appear larger and therefore, a stunning feature. Lipstick is entirely down to personal preference. You do not need to wear lipstick daily, as the natural shade of your skin will compliment your outfit beautifully. But, if you do wear lipstick, make sure it is a shade in keeping with your outfit. Too much clashing colors in make-up can look disastrous.

Anything goes! Large printed vest tops, oversized T-Shirts, crop tops, jackets are all conventional top styles in swag. The bigger and brighter, the better.
